Why should any organisation need voluntary sustainability and/or ESG report, if it is not mandatory?

There are various reasons, however according to us the most relevant one is “transparency”. Transparency enhances trust, which enhances brand value and company credibility. So sustainability report can build business.

We see sustainability reporting as an investment rather than a cost. So the challenge is to achieve sustainability reporting at a reasonable investment.
